PHOTO: A ticket doesn't give the view it used to at MSG

When you buy a ticket for an NHL game at the newly renovated Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Rangers play, it's a reasonable expectation to believe you should be able to see the nets from your seat. Heck, be able to see one net at least.

However that's not always feasible. A fan found out the hard way that it's not exactly a good view.

Well I don't know what the big problem is, who actually needs to see the nets at a hockey game anyway?

(Let the record show that these tickets, despite the claim from the tweeter, are indeed listed as obstructed and cheaper than most other seats.)

Over the past couple of years $1 billion was invested into MSG to update the arena and essentially make it a new building, on the inside at least. But while building it up it appears that at least for a few unlucky seats in the house things didn't get any better at all.

The Garden installed television screens under the newly constructed bridges in the arena for fans who couldn't see the jumbotron from their seats but who wants to go to the game to watch it on TV? Considering the prices of tickets at NHL games, particularly in New York, it's just a bit cheaper to do that from your couch instead of the nosebleeds.
